INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The president of Gen Con says its tabletop gaming convention drew a record crowd of nearly 70,000 people to the Indiana Convention Center, Lucas Oil Stadium and downtown Indianapolis hotels.

Gen Con President David Hoppe announced the attendance Monday. He didn't disclose the previous record but said attendance to the four-day gathering has doubled since it was first held in Indianapolis in 2003.

This year's meeting, which ended Sunday, featured 538 exhibitors and 19,600 ticketed events.

Hoppe said, "Each year we come to Indianapolis for Gen Con, the show feels bigger and better than the one before, and this year was no exception."
